Simple, but not easy. She's working with some fussy and incompatible fabrics, without visible puckering or twisting. They're pricey, and the designs are simple, but the actual construction was a pain in the butt. It's impossible to hide your mistakes when a garment design is simple.

Can you tell I hate sewing bridal wear?

OMG! That's over priced. I all about making a profit on product but that is over the top. I could make that dress for like 30.00 or so.

i was going to say the same thing about the pattern! all it is, is a piece all around on top and than flowy fabric sewed to the bottom of the top half and than straps (or not) attached and a ribbon around the wasit. very simple...and Im not even that good at sewing! haha

OMG forget selling $2 clippies!

It is beautiful - and well made too! And I agree with Dede, thinking about sewing something with those fussy fabrics gives me a panic attack.

That is super cute!
I sew, but straight lines challenge me. That dress, simple pattern or not, would be a disaster in my hands.

I guess I'm the only one here that doesn't like strapless or low back stuff on girls that young, just looks inappropriate to me. But her work is amazing.

Beautiful dress, but not for a little girl. Put some straps on it, and it would be perfect for a little girl. I agree that is a simple pattern, but sewing a dress like that takes time and patience. I do not think she is overpriced at all. To many WAHM's under price themselves. Just because it is handmade, does not mean it needs to be cheap.

I love this dress!!! Its adorable, all her stuff is. I don't think it is overpriced though. I think her dresses are mostly special occasion dresses or meant to be... Also the fabric IS a PITA to sew and they look well constructed. Also, like someone else said, too many of us under price ourselves. I was looking at her sales and she practically has a sale everyday so if people are willing to pay that much then it is worth it!
